Funny Fashion Friday: the late edition

king of the hill fluffies

I thought I’d have a camping post for funny fashion Friday but I don’t really. Yes, she did put some funny outfits together but I didn’t really take pictures of them and the pictures I do have are not posed so you can see her outfit clearly. But go ahead and use your imagination, I’m sure you won’t be far off. If it was green, she wore it. The above fashion statement is thanks to some super sucking mud that she stepped into near the lake.

Here she is in the little town of Ferndale. This look fit right in with the rest of the townspeople. We were on an early morning mission to get coffee and a doughnut before Toby woke up. She loves loves loves this skirt my mom made her. I think she’d wear it every day if I let her. The boots are her special “camping boots” and the white socks are white because the pink ones were dirty.

I don’t know what to say about this outfit. It’s not that terrible but yet it is.

And lastly, the best outfit of all. Seriously, I can’t make this stuff up. This is all Bug. The hat and sweater are hand-me-downs that have been passed through the family all the way from the 70’s. My Grandma made this sweater and hat for my brother when he was THREE. Or maybe two, I’m not sure. He was a pretty big kid. Anyway the sweater has held up quite well, don’t you think? The flowered capri pants are hand-me-downs from Annalie. Her shoes are the fake crocs that won’t die. My Aunt Keren gave them to her a year ago and they still fit. She wears them every single day it seems like and yet they will not fall apart. I guess that’s a good thing. If only they weren’t so day-glow green… but then of course they wouldn’t be such a favorite.


Then five minutes later she found a lei in her dress-up drawer that matched. I guess it all makes sense…if you’re three.

Funny Fashion Friday

channeling Betty Draper

I call this the Betty Draper look purely based on the shoes. Bug isn’t a girly-girl but she will break out the heels from time to time and she will beg me to let her wear them to the grocery store. So far I haven’t given in. So, this is not a bad look. I have to admit that while Bug did pick out these clothes herself she was basing her fashion choices (except for the shoes) off of what I was wearing. I have a skirt just like this except A-line and without trim and I was wearing a watermelon colored tank top. She likes to be matchy matchy. But she gets complete credit for the shoes.

fake acting

Stop! She’s hearing a message from the 80’s and it says, “I’ve got a feeeeeeeeling! I should wear tap shoes and this ugly hand-me-down shirt from my cousin but please notice that my socks match my pants!”

tooth-brushing fashion criminal

Okay, this is where me trying to help her get dressed goes terribly bad. First she puts on these size 24-months pants because they match Toby’s cords. I tell her they are too small, she insists they fit just right. I try to roll them to look like Katie Holmes but it just isnt’ working. Then she wants to wear her new wool “camping socks”. I let her. She tops her pants with this really cute Bug shirt that Anna Bonkers gave her but it kinda makes her look like a boy with the cords and the green socks so I gently suggest the girly shoes and the pink Dora vest (a hand-me-down). She dons the sunglasses and announces she’s ready to go. I wave a white flag.

I’ll take credit for this outfit. I picked out the shirt, the skirt and the shoes and socks. Thank you. I think she looks cute too. She added the purse and the headband. Maybe she is a girly-girl after all. But I will add here that this pose is entirely for you to notice that she has completed a whole week of brushing her teeth, every single day without missing one. A huge accomplishment in our house. The sad part of this outfit is that the skirt was meant for babies (it has a built in diaper cover) and the elastic has given out in the waist so she spent the whole day hiking up her pants so her lime green undies wouldn’t show. It’s being retired to the out-grown box.
